Anarchy, war, and disease have become our nation’s daily concerns and only news. Even if we do not face these situations directly, in our social and economic lives, we witness the prevalence of chaos in various forms.

Through the historical endurance of paper and its various papermaking artforms, the 30 featured artists issue an invitation to a quiet and peaceful moment that evokes a pleasurable experience that conveys freedom from chaos.
